SmoothiesWhen I was in college, I would treat myself to a 16-oz. White Gummy Bear at Jamba Juice. The best part about it was that it felt like I was slurping a dessert but thought I was getting all kinds of healthy fruits. But in this particular smoothie, there's sugar and four scoops of ice cream that get mixed in with the fruit, which ultimately amount to 540 calories and, depending on the size, anywhere from 40 to 110 g of sugar.
Eat this instead: Make your own smoothies at home, says Joy Dubost, American Dietetic Association Spokesperson, PhD, RD, CSSD. You'll get all the nutrients of the fruits without the added sugar.
